You can get a very good watch for this price and a lot of different styles as well. I will go through some of my own recommendations at this price range. All prices are in USD.
Orient Mako II FAA02009D9 ($150)
For the price you are getting a very reputable watch manufacturer and a very good divers watch. This watch is rated for 200m water resistance and also has an unidirectional rotating bezel. It also has an automatic movement and as per reviews has been told to be very accurate. The crystal is mineral and the case size is 41.5mm. The lume on the watch has been told to be a bit weak compared to others, but it still gets the job done.
Timex Marlin Hand Wound ($199)
This watch from Timex is a manual watch and is a great dress watch. The watch is 34mm in case diameter and comes from a great and reputable manufacturer and brand. It is water resistant to 30 metres which is more than adequate for a dress watch. Being a manual watch, this means you will have to manually wind the watch everyday to ensure it remains powered through the day.
Fossil Neutra Chronograph FS5452 ($190)
This is a quartz chronograph from Fossil with a case diameter of 44mm. It does run a bit on the bigger side but it is a fantastic watch for the price. The water resistance is rated for 50 metres, which means it should be fine for shallow water activity. It comes in a huge variety of colours in both the dial, case, as well as the straps.
Seiko Neo Classic Chronograph SPC133P1 ($180-$200)
This is for a fan of very busy dials. This Seiko is a chronograph with an alarm functionality as well. It also has a day of the week function, month, as well as a tachymeter around the dial of the watch. This is a Seiko’s own quartz movement with hardlex crystal and is water resistant to 100 metres. The case is 44.6mm in diameter which makes it a bit bigger than your usual watch.
Orient Classic SUNEF008 ($170)
A ladies watch with a case size of 26mm. It has a quartz movement and a black dial with a black and silver colour tone for the watch. It has a water resistance of 30 meters so be careful around water and do not take it swimming at all.
